If I had to base my sole decision on those two sentences, I would not say it
was a writing job. I would say they are writing code to automate what is a
manual, or partly manual, configuration management process, and they plan to
follow some sort of a process that they choose to call a Software Development
Cycle.

Now it would make sense that if they are creating software that they would need
an array of documentation to go with it. I would ask this company that is
familiar with your writing background if writing the documentation is why they
showed this to you or if they're wondering if you want to get into the coding
side (or even project management or requirements or whoknowswhat).

I think you need to ask for clarification on this one. I wouldn't reject it or
accept it without more information.
